Comment 1 Karel Zak 2005-05-25 09:03:23 UTC
It's wrong sysctl usage. It looks like problem with some initscript where is
deprecated sysctl option.

Can you check your /etc/sysctl.conf or you can try:

grep -r "net.ipv6.neigh.eth0.base_reachable_time" /etc/* 2> /dev/null

Do you have still this problem with the latest kernel and procps?

Comment 4 Doug Henderson 2005-10-19 02:46:36 UTC
I haven't seen this message with FC4 or FC5 (Rawhide) in a long time.
